Blogging again on The Previously Unnamed Novel

Since I will soon have a novel out with Rebel Ink Press, I've got a website completely dedicated to my writing and the inspiration behind it.

I used the blog in which I used to post chapters of my first stories (now removed). I gave that site the title "The Previously Unnamed Novel" since when I first began writing I had no idea what I wanted to call my story. Now, I keep it for sentimental reasons.

The link is here. Or, you can just go to

First Day of 2012

I lived in Florida a long time, and I never went into the water in January. Now that I live in New Orleans, my children talked me into going into the Gulf of Mexico at Pensacola Beach on January first. I'm not talking wading--we got all the way wet. I can't decide if I am proud or slightly embarrassed that we were such tourists.

My girls taking a nap, in between painting the rooms last month. We've been working pretty hard.

Fishing Camp - Canoe Camp

These are maps of the area our camp is in. We are right off of Bayou Philip, just a quick paddle from Bayou La Croix. A good hour of paddling from the Jordon River.

So it begins

I got this text from our sitter, nanny, friend (whatever term you prefer to use) last night as we snuck out for coffee and beignets.

Finwe just yelled to Inwe, "Oh, damn! You're in first place!" And, I yelled in from the laundry room, "Finwe?" And, he said, "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say 'damn'."

My only reply was that he is such a boy. I did glower at the husband. I'm sure he learned it from him. The text I got back from T turned that mean look into the squint of a laugh.

Thank god I was in a different room so he didn't see me laugh.
